House in Eskilstuna, Sweden

Our house is situated in the countryside 15 minutes drive from Eskilstuna, which is a town with a population of about 100 000.

The house lies privately but not secluded. It is a 1900th century cottage style house. It has three bedrooms and 1,5 bath. There are four fireplaces. We have a large garden where children can play freely and jump on the trampoline. The house has a nice verandah towards the south, facing open fields.

There are lovely surroundings for outings and day trips where we live. You may walk, cycle or go by car. You may have heard about the Swedish Right of Common Access, which will allow you to roam freely practically everywhere! The hiking track Sörmlandsleden passes a kilometer from us.

In Eskilstuna you will find everything you need, tourist attractions and things to do for children, e.g. a zoo with an amusement park and indoors as well as outdoors swimming. There is a small man-made lake with clean water in the village of Hållsta, which can be reached by bike from our house. In Hållsta there is also a pizza place, a gas station and a kiosk.

Less than half an hour's drive away is the lake Mälaren, which goes to the Baltic Sea. There is a lovely beach and a marina beneath the Sundbyholm Castle. There are trips by boat from here.

1h 15min drive (or an hour by train) away is Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, with a population of about a million and lots of tourist attractions.
 
You may have the use of one or both of our cars if you wish. We have two bikes for grown-ups and a bike suitable for a 10-12 year old.

Ryanair flies to Stockholm-Skavsta Airport which is conveniently an hour's drive from our place. Arlanda airport is 1h 45min away.

We have rabbits living outdoors that you may take care of if you want to, they need a little attention every day. Our neighbours that can help if you prefer that.

We have a small, well behaved, dog that we want to take with us. He is a bichon havanais, a breed that does not shed any hair and usually is tolerated by allergic people.
